Below are some of the most frequently asked questions from our customers. If you have a specific question and are not able to find the answer below, please contact us!
What is in your studio?
In our studio we have linen and chair cover samples on display as well as additional fabrics, colors and pattern options to view. We also have invitation books so you can see and touch real samples of event stationery versus only seeing it online. In addition to our 3,000+ accessories online, we have a sampling of popular wedding accessories on display as well.
What should I bring to the consultation?
We recommend that you bring a color swatch if you want to incorporate any particular colors into your event decor. Additionally, any element from your event that you feel we can draw inspiration from is great to bring as well. Pictures of your dress, venue, or design motif can be helpful. If you have a particular design in mind, bring a picture of it along for discussion.
Can I schedule a consultation even if I don't know where my event is going to be?
It is required that you have a venue reserved prior to your appointment as each venue is sized differently and carries differnt size tables and chairs. It is also helpful to have considered floral and theme decisions prior to your consultation.
I am not ready to make design decisions yet,
but I want to reserve our date so you don't get booked up, is that possible?
Yes. You may reserve your date with the required deposit. Again, we ask that you be absolutely certain that you would like to work with us, as all deposits are date specific and non-refundable. You may however transfer your deposit to another event or date.
How many people can I bring with me?
Our studio can accomodate you with up to 4 guests. It may be helpful to bring a parent, the groom, bridesmaids etc, but remember - the more input, the more difficult the decisions could be to make!
Do you deliver the linens and chair covers?
Yes! Mimi’s Bridal delivers, installs and removes the linens and chair covers at your event location.
How far in advance should I order my linens/chair covers?
Our busiest months are May, June, September and October. These months typically book up 12-18 months in advance. April, July and August usually fill up 10 months in advance. January, February, March, November and December are usually filled around 6-9 months in advance. HOWEVER, if you are past this deadline, please contact us as soon as possible to see if we are still able to help!
How much are your linens?
This is a tricky question as the answer depends on a lot of variables. The type of fabric, size of the linen and the quantity are major factors in the pricing. We can assist you in achieving the look you want using linens within your budget. Once linens are selected you will receive a written proposal with all of the pricing details. The proposal will include itemized pricing along with an estimate of the quantity you will need based on your tentative guest count.
Can I see a sample of the linens I am interested in?
Yes, we can set up a sample table of the linens and chair covers that you are interested in ordering. This is a perfect opportunity to see what your tables will look like on the day of the event.
Do you have a minimum order?
Due to the nature of our business we require a minimum order of $400
Can I pick up my linens at your studio?
Due to the nature of our business we are not able to accommodate clients picking and dropping off linens.
How much is the deposit?
Our typical deposit is 15-20% of the total order.
When is the final count due for my linens / chair covers?
The final count for linens and chair covers is due three weeks before your event. The actual date will be noted on your contract.
When is my final payment due?
The final payment is due upon receipt of invoice. This will also be noted on your contract.
How far in advance should I order my invitations?
It is best to order your wedding invitations 6-9 months prior to your event date. This will allow enough time for address and assembly of the invitations.
Will I receive a proof of my invitation?
Yes, we will email you a proof of all of the printed pieces in your order. You will be able to check for spelling, word placement and view the overall look of the invitation.
How long does it take for my invitations to come in once I place my order?
It generally takes two to four weeks for the invitations to come in after placing the order. The time will vary depending on the invitation ordered and if there is more than one proof needed.
